Wildflower Arrangement Workshop: Join Marissa for “The Art of Ecology” on June 11, at 6:30 p.m., as she guides participants around BCAS to search for and identify local wildflowers that do well in arrangements. She will also instruct about wildflower picking etiquette and how to avoid harvesting native species that require extra care. Each participant will bring home one floral arrangement.
